Newman To Start 15Th In UAW Dodge 400

Ryan Newman, driver of the Penske Racing No. 12 Alltel Dodge Charger, will start 15th in the UAW-Dodge 400 on Sunday afternoon at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Newman turned a lap of 180.355 mph (29.941 seconds). Pole winner Kyle Busch in the No. 18 M&M's Toyota turned a lap of 182.352 mph (29.613 seconds).

"I under drove the car on my qualifying run," Newman said. "I think we have a better Alltel Dodge than we showed in qualifying, but with all the problems that guys were having during practice, I was being conservative on my run. I think that we will be more competitive in race trim."

Newman has one win (Daytona) and two top-10 finishes in the first two races of the 2008 season. He is currently second in the NASCAR Cup points standings.

The UAW-Dodge 400 will air live on FOX on Sunday, March 2, 2008, beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET. The race will also be broadcast live on PRN.
